Good to know before you travel to Jordan

1. They will try to squeeze any cent out of you

When the local people see a tourist they are like bees to honey. Once you come to Jordan you will immediately feel like a magnet. Like never before. 

2. Taxi drivers are really obtrusive

I guess unfair behavior of taxi drivers is apparently common all around the world. But in Jordan, not only they are sneaky, but also very annoying. 

3. Hitch-hiking is too easy

Although the taxi drivers will try to convince you that people don't give lifts here, Jordan is my 31st visited country and anywhere else it wasn't as easy as it was here. I would say too easy. In most cases you don't even need to make any effort at all.
